  1. Hi! I have relaminated the top of the original table with a piece I buy at home depot. I have glued it. Then cut the best I can the inside for the head of the machine. After that the bottom of the table was repainted using some black metal paint. I have made a little box style on the bottom left to fit a little drawer buy from the dollar store. It has divided space to place foot and needles etc. The cost was low and it was easy to do. Hope it can help you!
  2. The fact that the machine is sewing so slow is great. I can pretty much stopping it just like a needle positionner. I manual handwheel less frequently using the speed reducer. I will try to remove the brake from the servo to see if it helps. Thanks for the trick Wizcrafts
  3. Hi, I recently install a speed reducer on my juki lu-563. It works really nice to slow down the machine. But the speed reducer make the handwheel really hard to turn manually. Even if I do push the pedal to release the brake on the servo motor. Is it a normal down side of having a speed reducer? Maybe the belt tension is too hard? Thanks
  4. Hi, I do sew with nylon V69, V92 and V138 on my juki Lu-563. I live in Canada near Montreal. A lot of sewing manufacturer can be found near me. I have found that the price is not the same regarding the same amount of thread between manufacturer. Example: V69 thread can be buy for 25$CAD to 60$CAD for a pound of thread... Witch me let me think: do I waste my money paying too much for thread? Is higher the price equal to higher quality? I cannot always have the information regarding the strenght of the thread and specifications to compare between the manufacturer. What do you guys think?
  5. Thanks for this procedure. It's what I will be doing.
  6. Hi everyone, in the past few months I have been sewing with a Juki Lu-563 that I buy used. I did time it and clean it using the video of Uwe Gross on youtube. It sew really well. Thanks to Uwe! Back when I bought the machine to the previous owner (the first and original one!)I had already a few needles with the machine. I did buy new needle (DPX 135 )but when I sew with them it just didnt works. I think the machine was time using shorter type of needle that the one I buy. Since the machine sew really well I was hoping someone can help me find the type of needle I was already using. If I can avoid retiming the machine using the dpx 135 needles it will be cool. Even if I do lost a little bit of clearance under the presser foot using a shorter needle. See the pictures Can someone help me please?
